Lewy Body Dementia webinar

Live Discussion: Betwixt and Intermixed—Dementia with Lewy Bodies
AlzForum: 15 June 2009
On 15 June 2009, Alzfourm hosted a Webinar discussion with slide presentations by Ian McKeith at Newcastle University, UK, James Leverenz at University of Washington, Seattle, James Galvin, Washington University, St. Louis, Brit Mollenhauer of Paracelsus-Elena Klinik, Kassel Germany, and Walter Schulz-Schaeffer of the University of Goettingen and audio provided via a telephone line.

Editor’s note: Nearly 400 caregivers and scientists logged on for this 80-minute event. In addition, the Alzforum received more than 100 caregiver questions. This discussion aimed primarily at increasing awareness of DLB among scientists and physicians and therefore focused on scientific research, but clearly there is a great unmet need among patients and caregivers to have their questions addressed. The Alzforum editors have collected comments received in advance of the discussion and during the live hour into a caregiver comment page and are asking the panelists to respond to these questions. Please visit the Lewy Body Dementia Association website to view the first instalment of answers to some of the most frequently asked caregiver questions. > go to Alzfourm discussion page

Webinar: A webinar is a seminar conducted remotely over the Web. Attendees view the slides through their Web browser and hear the presentations over their own telephones. View Webinar Instructions
